Welcome to AU-IBAR publications section.
AU-IBAR has also developed and published a strategic plan that aims to build on past successes, take cognizance of the many and complex challenges now facing the development of the animal resources sector and transform these into opportunities that take into account its strategic niche and comparative advantage.
Rinderpest is the greatest plague ever to assail livestock and wildlife in history. AU-IBAR has been on the forefront in the fight against the disease and Africa is now free of rinderpest. This book targets a wide range of stakeholders including policy makers, field epidemiologists and laboratory workers involved in the control and eradication of transboundary animal diseases. It can also contribute to the enrichment of veterinary education curricula as well as inform financial partners and other contributors in their efforts to support the prevention and control of other major livestock diseases.
This document presents the post Rinderpest eradication strategy developed by AU-IBAR for the mitigation of the risk of the re-emergence of Rinderpest in Africa. The document begins with a brief summary of the Rinderpest eradication process in Africa and the lessons learned. This is followed by a qualitative analysis of the risk of re-emergence of the disease. Finally, the post-Rinderpest eradication strategy for the mitigation of the risks identified in the analysis is presented.
AU-IBAR celebrated its 60 years of existence, the eradication of Rinderpest in Africa and the protection and development of animal resources on the continent on January 16th January 2012. To commemorate this occassion, AU-IBAR published a book accounting for the history, present and future of the institution.
In line with its mandate to disseminate information and knowledge to Member States, RECs and other relevant institutions on animal resources, AU-IBAR publishes materials on a variety of topics related to animal resources in Africa.
In order to foster focused agricultural development in Africa, the African Union and NEPAD have launched the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) and AU-IBAR has been designated as lead institution for the livestock sub-sector and was tasked to develop a framework for mainstreaming livestock in the CAADP pillars.
Other publications are also produced by individual projects from time to time:
AU-IBAR produces periodicals: Africa Animal Resources Newsletter, a quarterly newsletter that brings you exciting and informative development news, the SPS Bulletin for information on sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) issues and the SOLICEP Bulletin that touches on developments in the certification project.
Other publicity materials are also produced at AU-IBAR and project levels.
